Happy Friday! Today was such a crazy day but I love being busy 🙂 I know I’ve already posted about some upcoming spring trends and I mentioned that Tangerine Tango is THEE color for 2012, but I am already loving the bright colors and pastel trend for next season too. I have started seeing them everywhere. Pastels have always reminded me of Easter for some reason. Maybe because my mother always dressed me in those shades around that time lol. But I do love them and I’m really happy that they made a comeback. I got really excited when I saw the Spring 2012 collection for Essie because it includes a great mixture of both pastels and brighter hues.
A lot of times when we purchase things, whether it’s nail polish, clothes, shoes, or whatever, we don’t really think about what it took to make the product. Or we don’t think about what the designer’s thought process might have been or what it was that inspired them to create this item that we want. So when I did a little bit of research on this new Essie collection, I fell in love with the concept. And I have to say, it inspired me. The spring collection pays tribute to the beautiful, ambitious woman of action. Essie’s brand founder, Essie Weingarten, says “Fortune favors the bold. I am so inspired by women who dream big, go with their instincts and always manage to put their best self forward.” LOVE!!!
